Abstract:

This book investigates the English translations of Shen Congwen’s stories.
Shen Congwen (1902–1988) is one of the most acclaimed writers in modern
Chinese literature. His works have been translated into more than ten
languages and his 44 stories count with 70 different English translations.
Adopting a case study method within the framework of Descriptive Translation
Studies, the author selects and compares the most translated stories, those
with three or more translations, totalling fifteen translations from four
stories. The analysis of the texts focuses on Shen’s narrative style – his
narrative commentaries and his lyrical narrative mode – to see how his style
was re-presented in translation. In addition, the translators’ overt narrative
intrusions – their added notes – are also examined.

Further, on the basis of Bourdieu’s sociological concepts, especially habitus,
this study makes an attempt to interpret the different strategies adopted by
different translators, including scholar/non-scholar translators, L1/L2
translators, and translators of the 1930s and 40s and those of the 1980s
onwards.
